Saturday - 26.03.22
Time for tea
Get your cuppa fix as you sit and watch the world go by at Tea Sutra Teahouse. Relax and sip on whatever cuppa takes your fancy, from fresh herbal infusions, to traditional English Breakfast Tea and Earl Grey. And if you’re feeling peckish, why not throw in a freshly-made fruit scone?!
Va va voom!
Situated on Grainger Street and with a unique appearance, Côte Brasserie is a must-visit for those looking to indulge in decadent French bistro classics. The chic Parisian-style restaurant is famed for serving up a delightful array of delicious steaks, fresh mussels and other authentic French classics with a pretty sweet wine list to match. Perfect for a family déjeuner!
Calling all fashionistas!
Head over to the beautiful Grainger Market and you’ll find Analog Vintage Clothing store in Alley 3, full of precious 90’s pieces handpicked from across the globe. From streetwear giants such as Tommy Hilfiger, to Supreme and Palace, it’s a real dream for any fashion lover.
Catch Rent, the award-winning production that’s been wowing audiences since 1996 as it arrives at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House! It’s a classic tale of young love, shadowed by the threat of the HIV/AIDS crisis in the early 90s. Book your tickets to this wonderful production now!
Fancy a cocktail? Then Tiger Hornsby is the place to be. Situated on our iconic Quayside, this sophisticated, high-end place is a lush spot when it comes to sippin' on spectacular tipples. Get dolled up and head here to sample cool strawberry cocktails and jive away to a laidback soundtrack.
DJ turn it up!
Get ready for a Saturday to remember at Cosmic Ballroom, as UK dance giant and revered producer, Salute, arrives in the city for a night of pulsating house tunes. Expect a cracking night on the dancefloor as the very best in UKG, break-beats and techno rolls out all night long.
